A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy a sewing machine for sewing business.


Khalida's Group's story

Khalida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her sewing and embroidery business. With the loan investment, she will buy a new sewing machine that will allow her to complete orders on time, because her current machine has become rough and needs replacement. She will also buy beads, thread, and embroidery frames for the improvement of her embroidery business as well.

Her husband sells wood. In his area, people use wood for cooking food and purchase wood from him regularly. Khalida has given birth to five children. Only two of them are able to get an education, while the others remain at home. She is hopeful that the loan will help her make her business more profitable by offering better quality services to her customers.
